As a bird, you can do a lot with Terra-Roc. He can be standing, or perched on his behind with his head down and wings folded. One issue I have found with this mold is that it is very difficult to find one where all the joints are tight. The head and legs are loose on most of the Terra-Rocks I have come across, which is a shame as it makes him difficult to stand without flopping over. This might in part be due to how heavy the figure is and the stress placed on the small ankle joints. While Terra-Rocs are quite common, it's worth getting hold of one with tight joints as it makes a huge difference.
I find Terra-Roc very exciting. Maybe it is just childhood nostalgia talking, but I love the fact he's a pterodactyl (the best dinosaurs!) and his big rocky wings! The problem with the looseness of the mold are frustrating, but it's possible to find one that will stand properly, and then the mold really comes to life.
